ADA Signs - Do you have any questions?

The Americans with Disabilities Act marked a great civil rights triumph in our country for people with physical differences. Sometimes, though, navigating the requirements for ADA signs can be tough. Let the experts at The Sign Studio help you install ADA compliant signs for your business or location.Signs compliant with ADA regulations include signs for numerous locations including:

Parking lots
Restrooms
Ramps and stairways
Elevators
Storage rooms
Fitting rooms
ATMs

Signs often must include pictures or other graphics, symbols and Braille letters. Additionally, the government has imposed restrictions on fonts, the use of upper and lower case letters, and decorative elements. There are also government requirements for signage for exteriors, interiors and parking lots.

Rather than try to sift through all the government regulations yourself for your location, let the experts at The Sign Studio do the work for you. We have years of experience creating ADA signs for our clients to keep them in compliance with federal regulations.

Visit us today.

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please give us a call at The Sign Studio (818) 843-9200 or send us an e-mail at info@signstudiola.com.

Burbank Sign Company | ADA Signs With Braille & Tactile Guidelines

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Sat, Dec 22, 2012 @ 06:12 AM

 

The ADA Tactile & Braille Signage Code is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits, under certain circumstances, discrimination based on disability. The lack of accessibility or certain services can be considered discrimination, regardless of who it actually affects. This creates a need for ADA compliant signs. No individual may be discriminated against on the basis of disability with regards to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, or accommodations. When the law was first put into effect, there was a problem with ADA signs not being esthetically pleasing. Now that it's been in existence for some time, the question of esthetics has been resolved and the industry faces new problems with ADA signs. We continually add articles to this section, so be sure to check back often.

ADA Guidelines
Letters can't be smaller than 5/8-inch or larger than 2 inches. All letters must be a minimum 3/32 inches thick for tactility. And, generally, you cannot use elaborate or decorative fonts. San Serif fonts, like Helvetica, are the staple of most ADA signs. It may sound restrictive, and it is at some level, but the goal is not to stifle creativity. The goal is to serve an intended audience.

While ADA guidelines define font size, contrast and other criteria, the law does not define specific design criteria as it relates to aesthetics. Letter height, Braille placement, font, and color contrast make only minimal impacts on the visual appearance. There are ways to make ADA signage more attractive while still adhering to the guidelines.

ADA Materials
ADA-compliant materials are one way to make the difference between a ho-hum sign and an attractive presentation. Sign frames with the ability to change printed inserts are another. Finally, understanding what the guidelines really say about color contrast and icons could give you more freedom than you thought. Signs can be designed and made from an amazing variety of materials ranging from basic plastics to very elaborate designs of natural stone, woods, or metals.

Burbank Sign Co. | Are You Looking For ADA Family Restroom Signs?

Burbank Sign Co. | Are You Looking For ADA Family Restroom Signs?

Family Restroom Door Signs

When selecting family restroom signs, consider what message you are trying to convey to the public. Are the restrooms equipped for the entire family, ADA compliant and/or do they offer a changing station for mothers with babies?

Most family restroom signs convey simple images, often in black and white, that convey the purpose or functionality of the restroom. For example, women are depicted with a triangle shape, imagery that most people associated with a skirt, men are depicted without this added shape and a child is often holding hands between a man and a woman. If the restroom is ADA compliant, the image of an individual sitting in wheelchair is the most commonly chosen for the family restroom signs.

Beyond the basic imagery, family restroom signs are available in a variety of color backdrops; black, blue, green or even white. For lighter color signs, the imagery is often printed in black, whereas signs with a darker backdrop may offer the same imagery but in white forms for visual contrast. Family restroom signs are available in vertical and horizontal layouts, and a variety of sizes.

When selecting a sign for your business or organization, keep in mind that the sign needs to not only be easy to identify, but readable from a reasonable distance. Consider the overall size of the space as well as where the average visitor's viewpoint will be when selecting the sign's size. Ultimately, the sign's form and function should be simple, easy to understand and visible for all visitors entering the space.
